MYSTERY MERC SPOTTED: Reader David Solomon snapped up what could be the next Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

UGC

We’ve reported on dozens of spy images of future models and encourage readers to send through any images they have of upcoming models. Reader Davids Solomon spotted what could be the new Mercedes-Benz E or C-Class undergoing testing in Germany.

Solomon, a South African working in Stuttgart, Germany, says he spotted the model in our spy image gallery several times over July and August 2012. He finally managed to snap images of the camouflaged Mercedes. Though they appear to be the same model, they sport different licence plates.

'NOT BUYERS PLATES'

Solomon said: “The front and rear bumpers are always covered up. The interior was shrouded, as was the front. There was heavy shrouding around the grille, too.”

The two models are registered in the towns of Tubingen and Böblingen. Solomon explains: “The vehicle with plates beginning with Tü are Tübingen-registered, a town about 30km south-west Stuttgart. I saw this one driving through the city centre.

“The other vehicle is Böblingen registered (BB), which is about 16km from Stuttgart. This was driving close to Feuerbach, a suburb just north of Stuttgart.

“The plates are not buyer's plates as these are normally red, so they are not potential clients' cars,” he said.

Pictured next to the Volkswagen Touareg, its dimensions make it more in line with the new C-Class due to be launched in 2013.
